Of course I have water to give to my plants, but I just don't have compost or soil (other than salty sand outside) and the container isnt "small" its medium sized but from reading in the internet it seems that tomatoes and vegetables need a massive area to grow in (or at least thats what blogs about it make it sound like)
since beans have done okay for you, id suggest a couple things with similar needs (but less water): cowpeas or tepary beans. generally inbreeding self-pollinators.
I don't think I've ever seen those...
seed for many things may be tricky to get - in some fruits/vegetables, the seeds aren't yet mature when they're picked for eating...I'm wondering if we should try to work out some kind of seed-for-something-else swap, since you don't have seed to trade...have you looked at the seed-swap section?
How exactly do we trade? (I've never done it before)
Well .... do you want salty sand?
Jk, I've got aster seeds that I havent used yet, but like I said I don't know how we're supposed to trade...

I've red that onion likes sandy soil, so I guess I could raise that easily here, but do I have to wash the sand incase its really salty or will that remove the already few useful things in it?
